The exhibition contains of over 100 posters produced in response to the
Viet Nam war as seen through the eyes of three very distinct cultures. The
US posters against the war include Pop Art, anonymous posters from RESIST
and FUCK THE DRAFT, as well as SDS and Black Panther posters. Of
particular note are the original posters produced in Viet Nam that "display
a riveting artistry at the service of nationalism and productivity." Also
included is a massive poster from Berkeley in response to the bombing of
Cambodia. There will be a resource room with documents from that era as
well as a chronology of historical and cultural events. A film festival is
also planned in conjunction with the art installation.

A catalogue for $24.95 from Smart Art Press accompanies the installation.
